    Kept an exposed beam in our newly renovated property. Coated with intumescent fire proof solution and finished with Matt based paint in anthracite grey. Complimented by the London yellow stick brick wall.

Dare to bare… structural steelSteel is a remarkable material for what it allows us to achieve in architectural design, to the point that we can appear to defy the laws of physics with floating staircases, split-level mezzanines and the like. Structural steel can be left exposed to give a great industrial twist to an interior. As with exposed ducting, this is a strong look and will work best if you really make feature of it. Standard profiles include box sections, RSJs (UCs and UBs in the trade) and PFCs. Big chunky connection details with spot-welded plates and M20 (20mm diameter) bolts are always impressive to see. Again, check your regulations: steel that’s integral to the structure of the building itself must be enclosed by fire-rated materials and so cannot be left exposed.TELL US…Have you exposed any raw materials in your home?

Gideon’s team removed an entire wall and put in a large steel beam – which you can see here – as support. ‘This allowed us to open up the room to the kitchen-diner as well as to the courtyard,’ he explains.And if you’re wondering about the figurines decorating the beam, they were a gift from Harvey’s brother, who was working for a design brand with a bulldog as a logo. ‘We just loved the logo,’ he says, ‘so he bought us a whole set!’
